Earlier this month, Holium Corporation the developers of Realm, announced the acquisition of Third Earth, an Urbit hosting platform. After just one short year in operation, Holium is nearing the official launch date of Realm, a full-service operating system designed for the future of computing. While currently in Alpha stage, Realm has over 5,000 users on their waitlist eager to be granted access and begin utilizing the feature set. The official launch is slated for Summer 2023 with an aggressive development cycle currently underway. Having raised $2.9M in seed funding, Holium deployed resources to build integrated apps such as a crypto wallet, a video conferencing platform, and collaborative document creation. To date, 10 Urbit apps have been pushed live by the Holium team with more on the near horizon including a group messenger for mobile.

Holium Corporation Details:

  • Realm operating system will be available for download on MacOS, Windows, and Linux.
  • With the acquisition of Third Earth, Holium will provide Urbit hosting and seamless onboarding.
  • A complimentary mobile app is in development and will launch along with Realm.
  • Realm will move from Alpha to full release in Summer 2023, forgoing the Beta phase entirely.

"Our goal at Holium is to create a collaborative computing experience which fosters community growth while maintaining user autonomy. Urbit allows us to do so as it is truly peer-to-peer without any form of data collection or distribution. With a single Urbit ID and access to Realm, individuals can easily eliminate 5 to 8 applications from their personal and professional software stack."
